He is still eating just cereal, we have switched from rice to oatmeal in hopes of helping his little system out. He has gotten great at working the spoon, and just loves meal times. He has figured out how to roll onto his tummy this week and with it comes a whole new personality! He definitely likes being on his stomach if he’s the one that got himself there. He will stay longer, work harder, and enjoy himself more when he gets there himself (insight to future Josiah?). There are some benefits to being the youngest in his playgroup. For instance, I knew once he figured out how to roll over, he would soon do it in his crib. All the time. This is how we found him this morning:
He wasn’t unhappy, though. In fact, even though he was awake, he was very happy to stay that way and play by himself. Normally when we get up he starts sqwaking to be held, but today, he was content to play with the bumper for a little bit longer. I wish I had taken a picture of him pushing up to look at us behind him, it was too cute. This morning’s nap he was on his stomach again, but having fun looking at his reflection in the mirror. I know the novelty will wear off soon and Josiah will need to be flipped over, but for now its super fun.
Recently, Josiah also found his voice. Gone are the days of the muted cry! Now he has a sound that can only be described as sqwaking(as mentioned above). There are moments that I flashback to our cat in Hawaii meowing under our windows in heat–the similarity is uncanny! Josiah has also started laughing a lot. We posted a video a few weeks ago with him giggling while getting tickled. These days, its much easier to get him to laugh. Sometimes just looking at him will get him going. Once he gets going, its hard to stop!
And since I haven’t posting much lately, I thought I’d show you what I have been doing:
I’m trying not to eat all that I bake, but its tough!
